New Batch of Photos Show Lighter Side of Roman Polanski's 'Carnage'

July 29, 2011

Back in March, we got our first look at Roman Polanski's promising new film Carnage, an adaptation of the stage play God of Carnage which follows two sets of parents, played by John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz, brought together very suddenly by an altercation between their respective children. While it sounded like the film would be pretty dramatic in its execution of the parents' meeting which ultimately crumbles, some new photos show the lighter/comical side of the film with Foster spraying flowers with perfume to give them a scent, and Waltz blow-drying Reilly's cell phone. View below!

Here's the new batch of photos from Polanski's Carnage straight from Filmspoons (via The Playlist):

From Knife in the Water to Repulsion to The Tenant, French filmmaker Roman Polanski has shown himself to be an absolute master at making the most restricted spaces come to dramatic life. In Carnage, aided by four remarkable performances, he has "reached a new pinnacle in his already extraordinary career." The screenplay for Carnage was adapted from Yasmina Reza's highly acclaimed stage play God of Carnage by both Reza and Polanski. This was shot entirely in Paris, produced by SBS Productions and Constantin Film. Sony Pictures Classics is handling US distribution, and is bringing Carnage to theaters this fall, starting November 18th. It's hitting the Venice Film Festival and opens the New York Film Fest, but not Toronto.

      • Dgd

        • T0tallyrad
          Polish-French or French-Polish director then.

            He is Polish-Jewish. He was born in polish-jewish family in Paris. He was born as Rajmund Roman Thierry Liebling. 5 years his birth, the family moved to Poland. He was a student of Polish National Film School...Doesn't sound french at all to me. He is married to Emmanuelle Segnier, but he was married to a polish actress as well as Sharon Tate so it doesn't mean anything.

    Child rapist

      Is that your hobby or full time job?  I hope you are not a Jerry lee lewis fan as well. If the victim can forgive him why cant you?
    • Staatz
      Bad people can make great art, You shouldn't let that stop you from enjoying it.
    • Ginny
      I agree, CBFawley, there is nothing more disgusting than people that defend child predators.  Hey Pilgrim UK, would you forgive someone for sodomizing your 13 year old daughter?  Roman Polanski NEVER paid for the crime of raping that girl, but apparently you people think it's more important that he keep making films than justice being served.
      • CookieMonster
        Apparently, even the victim dropped her charges:P So it's just a problem of the People.
        • Awtan90
          She dropped the charges because she got paid off. When someone hands them a few hundred thousand dollars or so some people are more than willing to forget.
      • Pilgrim UK
        He has paid for in other ways like the inability to travel to certain countries and the restitution he had to pay the victim. What part of "vile act" says I like what he did. Did he continually pray on children after he fled the country? Did he have past liaisons with children before he fled the country? child rape is digusting but ignorant views is just as bad. In answer to your question I probably would get over it given time after beating seven bells out of him beforehand. 
        • Awtan90
          He didn't have an inability to travel to certain countries, he just didn't travel to certain ones because he was afraid they would extradite him to the United States. He hasn't paid for anything he ran away from jail. It' just another case where the rich and famous don't have to pay the same penalties we do. 
  • Fdg
    He is a polish film maker, how could you say he is a french dude, WTF none wants to be called a french!
  • Marco_issa
    is there a trailer?
  • Mark
    Roman Polanski is a pathetic coward that's hid out in Europe for decades to keep from having to do time for the crime of raping a child, I wouldn't see one of his films if you paid me to.
  • Jez
    Thanks for the Health and Safety tip Kate (bending the knees rather than the back).
  • CookieMonster
    If he was a criminal then he would be chased by interpol. Only USA thinks he's a child rapist.  Even hollywood actors don't mind starring in his films.
